Bail for woman charged in attempted murder

Sheila Devilliers also charged with aggravated assault and assault with a weapon in connection with the June 13 stabbing.

  • Jun. 19, 2013 5:00 a.m.

The woman accused of stabbing a man on Leon Avenue last week has been granted bail.

Sheila Devilliers, 47, is accused of attempted murder, aggravated assault and assault with a

weapon in connection to last Thursday’s stabbing of a 39-year-old man outside the Gospel Mission. He suffered non life-threatening injuries.

Police say Devilliers was in a previous relationship with the man and allege the stabbing was preceded by a verbal argument between the pair.

Devilliers, who wore her curly blonde hair in a bun, sat quietly in a Kelowna courtroom Tuesday as lawyers made submissions about bail at a 40 minute hearing.

Details of those submissions, as well as the judge’s reasons for granting Devilliers’ release on a no deposit or surety recognizance, are subject to a publication ban.

Conditions of Devilliers’ release include no contact with the victim and three other men and a 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew, except when she is working. She may not be in the downtown area, cannot possess alcohol, drugs or weapons, and cannot enter any business where liquor is the primary commodity sold.

Devilliers is scheduled to return to court July 4.
